Written answers (Question to Health)

The organisation referred to is a Section 39 funded organisation. Staff in such organisations are not classified as public servants, not counted in public service numbers, do not have public service pensions and are not bound by the Department of Health Consolidated Salary Scales.

As this is a service matter it has been referred to the Health Service Executive for direct reply.
